Square Marie Trintignant - en printemps


Square Marie Trintignant


This small garden was founded in 1933 as Ave Maria Square 
and has a well-appointed 790 m².
In May of 2007 Mayor Bertrand Delanoe renamed it 
after the actress Marie Trintignant.


He must have seen these trees in bloom.

Beautiful photo. I did not know Marie Trintignant had a Parisian square named after her. Do you know her Genie? Talented actress. Tragic life. Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

Spring has sprung in abundance. Fabulous blossom.

Just got smitten by that lovely banner you have here and fresh blooms from this post. Got my eye on your next posts.

I hope that Marie's dad, Jean-Louis, also will get a nice square named after him! Of course, he's still alive. I know only of Victor Hugo, who got an avenue with his name (where he then lived) already before passing away.

Maria said...

Very nice square and picture. Aha, she (is) was the daughter of Jean-Louis. He and Emmanuelle Riva were so excellent in the beautiful film: Amour.
Here, in Holland, there is hardly any blossom to see, trop froid!

Oh, Genie, this is magnificent! Nature does truly robe herself in beauty en printemps!

Dianne said...

Would you believe Genie I've never been to Paris in the Spring ...... Must rectify that .... it looks SO pretty.

Longing to see that around here! Lovely!

She was such a sad soul. Hope her father and sons appreciate that this beautiful spot was renamed for her.
